I've just spent 5 nights at La Barbarie and ate here on each night. The restaurant has a wonderful range of dishes, the menu options change nightly and there are specials. There is lots of local fish on the menu and the cheese board features local cheeses. The food was the highlight of my visit!! There is also a very... More

Nice restaurant with a good choice of dishes on the menu. They tend to specialise in fish and seafood dishes, but the steaks look good too. The food is tasty, and the service is good.

We went here for a bar meal and while the quality of the food was generally very good, each course was let down by the 'finishing' in the kitchen. First up was chicken lover parfait with 'toast' only it was 2 triangles of pappy sliced white bread which had probably been somewhere near a toaster as it had no colour... More

Sensational value with the Early Bird menu. French country style restaurant with a first class wine list and very attentive service. I would have no hesitation to recommend this restaurant to anyone.

Cannot fault this restaurant where the staff are friendly and efficient and the food is excellent. The manager and the majority of staff have worked together at this restaurant for many years and know how to please their customers. Many visitors come back year after year and the restaurant is popular with locals who make regular visits.

I haven't been to La Barbarie for about 5 years, it is tucked up in the lanes of St Martins and I would not classify it as a go to restaurant but we were pleasantly surprised. The staff were welcoming, accommodating... More

The service was very good and attentive, but we had an issue with one of the meals which was very bland and totally lacking in flavour. We thought that this may have been due to the fact that it was vegetarian and the restaurant serves mainly fish and meal. However, the staff were very good and exchanged it without quibble.... More
